This is mostly about career choices,but it's great for the woman in your life who feels stuck in her job and is looking for a change. And if nothing, she wouldn't mind looking at Marcus himself, he's a cutie!

To me he says, I'm an 'Advisor'

Your smartest career move:
Any job where you’re paid to be opinionated


:roflmao:

But he's not half as bad as other Executive/Life coaches. Atleast he's pretty!

I'm a motivator. The supporting role is influencer. What is the supporting role? What was yours, divea?

motivator:
You are acutely aware of the energy in the room, and you feel compelled to do what you can to elevate it. You do this with your outlook—you are an instinctively optimistic person.
Your best quality:
Your infectious energy
Always:
Step in and take responsibility for the group
Be careful you:
Don’t get sucked dry by emotional vampires
Your smartest career move:
Any job where you’re paid to keep a group of people excited.

My supporting role was Creator. Here it is



YOUR
LEAD ROLE
ADVISOR
You begin by asking:
'What is the best thing to do?'
Your thrill comes from knowing that you are the person others turn to for the answer. You don’t necessarily want to be the person who actually makes the changes happen. Rather, what excites you is being valued by others for your insight and your judgment.
Your best quality:
Your ability to find a solution
Always:
Search for data to support your advice
Be careful you:
Don’t get frustrated by other people’s failings
Your smartest career move:
Any job where you’re paid to be opinionated
YOUR
SUPPORTING ROLE
CREATOR
You begin by asking:
'What do I understand?'
You aren’t immune to the feelings and perspectives of others, but your starting point is your own insight, your own understanding.
Your best quality:
Your ability to find patterns invisible to others
Always:
Find time to be by yourself
Be careful you:
Don’t think so long, you never do anything
Your smartest career move:
Any job where you’re paid to produce new content.



The one thing that was bang on target was, how I see patterns. I really do, in people's behaviours. And that too correctly. (Sandman, I saw that wisecrack, don't say it) I have been looking for Master's degree courses for School Counselling.......Univ. Of Phoenix to be precise, and this test just confirmed for me that, that's what I want to do. Now whether or not I can pay for it is another matter.
